Friction disc and bearings on old 10M6D

Visually inspected my friction disc and it has some cracks, but looks like a real chore to replace. I was thinking in the spring I would take my time and attempt it. It still pulls hard, reverse sometimes need a little help should I leave it until it fails completely, prob during the great blizzard of 2016!
There seems to be little to no play in the shaft the impeller is on or the augers, safe to say the 47 yr old bearings are holding there own? Its noisy when the impeller is running. There was zero oil in arguer gear box. I filled it with 80wt gear oil and looks like it's staying in. Anyone fill these with bearing grease in stead of oil, something that is done on old vw steering boxes.
Thanks
Not sure if this should be moved to ariens section

The problem with grease is it doesn't always flow and coat all the parts. As long as the seals are good you are better off with oil. If you wanted you could use 00 grease. It's almost grease but not quite. It's what they use a lot in geared riding mower transmissions.

You might want to clean and lube the shaft the friction disc slides on. When you have a gear selector that sticks or is hard to shift it's likely the disc is sticking on the shaft from dirt or just old dried up lube. Carb/brake cleaner or something similar works well.
Then just use a little oil or light film of synthetic grease and you're good for another year or three.

The impeller bearing might be tight but if it's noisy that's a real bad sign. I would plan on doing the friction disc and tearing the impeller down to feel that bearing this summer. Last thing you need is find out the bearing goes out when you have a driveway full of snow.

You have to remember with parts people some like a challenge and they get tired of the same old, same old. Some times it's just a matter of how you present your problem when you're at the counter and making sure you let them know you appreciate the help.

I've had pretty good luck with the Ariens parts site: ' + objMainFrame.arrApplicationTitle['EN'] + ' -- PartSmart¬*Web¬*Version 5.13.23¬* ¬* ¬* ¬* ¬* ¬* ¬* ¬* ¬* ¬* ¬* ¬* ¬* ¬* ¬* ¬* ¬* ¬* ¬* ¬* ¬* ¬* ¬* ¬* ¬* ¬* ¬* ¬* ¬* ¬* ¬* ¬* ¬* ¬* ¬* ¬* ¬* ¬* ¬* ¬*

That and on the older stuff ANY .com parts supplier: repairclinic, jackssmallengine, searspartsdirect, MTDparts, MFGsupply, ombwarehouse, ebay ....
